Author and journalist Sonia Faleiro joins us to discuss The Good Girls: An Ordinary Killing, her new narrative non-fiction book which examines the killing of two teenage girls in India in 2014. Sonia talks to Steph about her route into journalism and how she researches complex topics and then translates them into engaging narratives. It’s a conversation packed full of practical advice for non-fiction writers and is also a fascinating discussion of the core themes of The Good Girls.
